There’s no better sign that winter has started than by Montrealers being excited about the mercury rising slightly above 0°C.
While Quebec and Montreal have been blasted with fridged cold over the past week, Environment Canada’s predictions for the next few days are looking decidedly milder by comparison.

Saturday, December 21, will be a distinct improvement over the -33°C we faced on Thursday, but still is predicted to deliver a still somewhat unpleasant high of -9°C, with a mix of sun and clouds during the day and a low of -13°C overnight.
Sunday, December 22, is where the weekend really shines with a predicted high of 1°C and a low of -1°C at night — that’s practically t-shirt weather. Don’t break out the swim trunks and sunscreen just yet though, as there is a chance of flurries predicted over the course of the day.
Not to be outdone, Monday, December 23, is when Environment Canada says the above freezing temperatures will peak with a daytime high of 5°C. From there out the temperatures will slide back down below 0°C for the remainder of the week.
With all the ups and downs already faced by Montrealers in the new winter season, you might think we deserve a white Christmas, though we’ve been told not to expect one.
